View Full Version : Shooting out of a Forest

Heyo,

Big debate... Much shouting. Much ambiguity.

So the rules state:

"[Thus], a model can see 3" into or out of a forest but not completely through one regardless of how thick it is."

1) Does this mean that a model gets it's full range/LOS to models outside a forest if it is within 3" of the edge of the forest?
2) Worded differently but essentially the same question... If a model is in the forest and there is less than three inches of forest between it and the edge of the forest then it can shoot it's full range out of a forest?
3) If a model is only partially within the forest and facing outwards is it's LOS blocked at all... Presumably no... Dependent on 1) since a model is considered within the forest.

Basically there were two camps. One camp was saying 1) was true. The other camp read this to mean that models within a forest can only shoot 3" out of a forest if they are within the forest at all.

Cheers

This goes along with the last part. If a model has a forest between it and the target and neither are in the forest, the LOS is blocked no matter the thickness of the forest. This is illustrated below, where model A doesn't have LOS to model B.
Model A -> (any distance) -> Forest (any thickness) -> (any distance) -> Model B

A forest between models completely blocks line of sight.

A model in a forest trying to draw line of sight to a model not in a forest or a a model not in a forest trying to draw line of sight to a model in a forest can both do so, so long as the line they draw passes through no more than 3" of the specific forest that the model is in.
